Gee, What Do You Think Causes Islamophobia?

Michael Moynihan at Reason summarizes Swedish news accounts of recent terrorist bombings in Stockholm and includes this tidbit:
The bomber cited the Swedish military's involvement with NATO in Afghanistan and "threatened" those serving there. According to Expressen, the letter also urges Muslims to fight back against "Islamophobia" in Sweden, presumably by murdering Swedes, and calls on "all mujahadin in Sweden and across Europe" to rise up.
I can't imagine what could cause Islamophobia in Sweden.  I mean, besides terrorist bombings by Muslim extremists.

A phobia is an unreasonable or illogical fear. I would submit that this is not "islamophobia" because the fear is not unreasonable or illogical.
